Do you know the quickest way to win an 8 year old’s heart? Three words – King Size Candybar. That they: don’t. have. to. share. 😉 Hi Friends, it’s Wendy Sue here today, sharing a quick and easy birthday treat idea you can whip up in no time at all!
Whether you’re creating party favors, neighbor treats, special gifts for a class or team, or some fun “just because” treats, these quick and easy candy bar wraps are the perfect solution! Here’s a quick tutorial, just to demonstrate how easy they are to make! Start by cutting the wrapper from patterned paper (I used the “Happy Cake Day” collection for this project).
I used cut file # 44645 from the Silhouette store, but I had to resize it to fit the larger candy bars. After the wrapper is cut, fold along all the score lines.
Use a strong adhesive to secure the wrapper and slide in the candy bar.
(If you don’t have an electronic die cutting machine, you could also trim the paper and simple wrap around the candy. )
Use a pre-made white shipping tag or create your own simple white tag shape to fit over the front of the candy bar (approximately 2 1/2″ x 5″). Use foam adhesive square or other adhesive to add a printed die-cuts or two to the front of the tag.
Print a sentiment or greeting onto white cardstock. Cut into strips and notch on the right end. Punch a hole in the left end. Add this piece to the front of the tag, aligning the holes.
Now attach this entire piece to the front of the candy wrap – I like to use foam adhesive squares here too!
Next, tie a piece of colorful coordinating ribbon around the entire piece and tie through the tag holes on the front.
Now repeat the process as many times as you need – it’s quick and easy, and it’s sure to be a hit with the recipient!!
